Healthy Lemon Blueberry Breakfast Cheesecake

 

Easy, healthy, gluten-free breakfast cheesecake! Yes, I said breakfast and cheesecake in the same sentence and in my kitchen, it’s not uncommon to have dessert for breakfast. In fact, it’s perfectly acceptable to have this healthy, lemon, blueberry cake first thing in the morning because its high in protein and full of fiber and carbs from the gluten-free oats–a perfect breakfast treat.

 


 

I made this delicious bake using PEScience Gourmet Vanilla protein powder and you can get it for 30% off by using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website www.pescience.com

Healthy Blueberry Baked Donuts

 

My greatest kitchen investment is hands down my Wilton donut mold pan; which really isn’t an “investment” at all because I got it for like fifteen bucks on amazon. Needless to say I have more than baked my money’s worth of donuts in that thing.

 


 

If you have never tried a Healthy Baked Low Carb Protein Donut before then you are really in for treat! These little blueberry cakes were made using whole food ingredients like brown rice flour which you can also sub for oat flour if needed. I bake a lot with brown rice flour because it’s not as expensive as other “healthy” flours–and when you bake as much as I do, those couple of dollars matter!

 

I also used PEScience Select Protein because it’s my favorite protein powder on the market and quality protein makes a huge difference when you are baking. When I first started creating recipes, I would buy the cheapest protein I could find… big mistake! Poor quality protein will leave you with a rubbery texture and an overpowering flavor. So a good quality protein powder will make a huge difference–just trust! PEScience is amazing and gives my readers 30% OFF all PEScience products using code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website PEScience.com! Yay!

Healthy Blueberry Muffin Breakfast Bites

I love all fruit but I especially love summer-time fruits like apricots, cherries, strawberries, kiwi…I could go on forever but I don’t want to bore you with my fruit obsession. I will say that I have some good news about these blueberry muffin breakfast bites, I mean besides the obvious fact that they taste like dessert for breakfast, you can make these blueberry muffin bites any time of the year by using dried wild blueberries. WIN!

 

Blueberry-Muffin-Breakfast-Bites


 

I grew up eating dried fruit but for whatever reason, I have never had a dried blueberry before and like a dodo, I didn’t realize they even existed until I was in the grocery store the other day. I was so excited I bought a few bags and for the last few days I’ve been day dreaming about all the blueberry treats I plan to make with them.

 

Like all dried fruit, these dried berries have key differences to their fresh counterpart. Significantly, the calories and sugar are quite a bit more when the blueberry is dried. A cup of fresh blueberries contains about 84 calories and 15 grams of sugar but one cup of dried blueberries has over 500 calories and 100 grams of sugar. Portion size is key when it comes to the dried berry. Although they may be tiny, they pack a nutritional punch that often qualifies them to be a super-fruit and for good reason! They are packed with antioxidants and loads of fiber—especially when dried! And in my opinion, when baking with dried blueberries, it gives you a more intense blueberry flavor. Perhaps, it’s from all the extra sugar packed into those shriveled up blueberries but none the less, they are delicious and fiber-licious and that’s a win in my book!
